EDUCATION HERE HAS A COLOURFUL RANGE OF POSSIBILITIES
Who's behind The Nails Mentor?
Hi, my name is Mirielle Ficacci. I’m a Nail technician, Session Manicurist, Brand Ambassador and Educator for Vision Gels Systems as well as a branding expert and Graphic Designer.
I don't have fancy nail awards, thousands of followers, nor am I an influencer on social media. I’m not trying to impress you with free online videos so you buy some overpriced training or products.
Why do I admit to these things? Because I don’t want to pretend to be something I am not. I believe in honesty. I’m offering an education that is invaluable. My awards are customers’ returning for my services. They consider me an expert. For me, social media is about making a difference by posting quotes and information that is real and relevant. I spend as little as 2 minutes on my posts, my pictures are imperfect, they show defects and are portrayed by real people with imperfect hands and, honestly, I LOVE IT! It’s all honest, pure and has real-world implications.
I’m pragmatic and believe Education is the Key to reaching professional goals. I also believe online learning works, since it isn’t a new learning platform within the educational system. I recognize that nowadays the “self-taught” concept is making people think watching videos can convert any person to professionals or experts, but there is fundamental knowledge missing from free resources. It can’t replace ¨formal education¨. Instead of the “self-taught” term that implies lack of guidance from a teacher or instructor, I prefer to use the term “independent learning”. That means that you access education that is meaningful to you and helps you reach your specific goals.
I have formal training as an online educator and have created curricular subjects for e-Learning University programs. Let me tell you eLearning education is more than simply being trained by watching videos, interacting on social media groups, and receiving feedback of your work. eLearning integrates texts, videos, quizzes, tests and projects you work on your own pace, while always having your fellow classmates and mentors available to communicate with via chats, groups and video calls. This offers invaluable input to your individual learning journey.
I created this online training program to serve not only beginners in the nail industry, also seasoned nail technicians and business owners that need help with their careers or their businesses.
